As a brand new author she will without a doubt reap many rewards from all the spectacular panels and the networking opportunity would be amazing! She is an amazing person and excellent writer!

    I have never been to anything like it before and I think it could be quite enjoyable.

  • Wow!!! What an amazing prize package!!!! I would love to be able to meet all the amazing authors that I love and hopefully meet some of the online friends that I’ve made over the last 6 months. Thank you for the chance to win!

    I have been trying to go to one of these signings since I first heard about it. But time and all never seem to work out right lol. Plus i mean have you seen the authors at this thing, wow!

  • Casey Peeler

    Awesome giveaway! I can’t wait for June!!!!!!!!!

  • Kathy

    I LOVED UtopYA last year and cannot wait to get back there again in June! The energy that flows around the venue is unrivaled, and the author line-up is spectacular. I have my tickets already but would love to win the prizes and take a friend along to experience UtopYA2014.

  • Nikki Deatherage

    Honestly? i’d love to win this prize package because I recently lost my job (don’t roll your eyes, it’s true lol) and unemployment is going to just cover my bills..what about *MY* book addiction. The giftcard will cover that, and the UtopYA package would be awesome to have.. Hopefully by then i’d have a job and could take my sister with me (she’s also a book nerd).

    • Why would I roll my eyes? Losing your job sucks, sweets. Good luck with the giveaway!

      • Nikki Deatherage

        Lol. I just know that sometimes people bust out the sob stories in hopes that it garners the sympathy vote. It did suck but luckily I had already purchased Christmas gifts. πŸ™‚

        • Well, that’s good. At least you don’t have to worry about added holiday stress. And don’t worry.. stories don’t garner votes with a Rafflecopter πŸ™‚

  • Jessica Posey

    I missed going to UtopYA last year and I would absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to go in 2014. Thank you in advance for the consideration and Happy Holidays!

  • Rainne Atkins

    Good luck to everyone!

    I won’t enter, Toni, as I’m in the UK and would be unable to go πŸ™

  • Crystal

    I live in Nashville, and have missed UtopYA both years! I am literally itching at the chance to go! I have added UtopYA tickets to my wishlist for Christmas/New Years/Anniversary present, but I’m not willing to risk it! Thank you so much for the chance to attend!!! ::hugs::

    • How awesome! I wish I lived in Nashville. How great is it there? My husband and I want to move there.

  • Laura

    This is the first time I hear about UtopYAcon, and I think this is amazing.
    Good luck to everyone!!

    I live (relatively) close to Nashville, sci-fi is cool, girl nerds are cool, and road trips are cool.

  • Monica G.

    I would love to win because I’ve never been to UtopYA (or any other convention or that matter) and by being a bookworm, I would love to have the opportunity to meet some of my favorite authors. Thanks for the chance at winning this amazing gift!

  • MonicaBlanton

    I would love to win this b/c my first UtopYa was last year and I loved it and want to go back! This time I would love to bring my fiancee. I am a writer and have 2 short stories published so far and working on 2 of my own books. Things have been a little tight and stressful lately with not much of a way out and this would be a perfect oppertunity for my fiancee and I to get away and do something together. We have been together 7 yrs and have 2 little girls and have yet to go on some kind of vacay together. I am thankful for everything we do have and I feel blessed, but a breather would really be nice right now. We both have been working so hard lately to stay a float, on so many different levels, and we never get any further. I feel that if there is some time we could have to just step back it would help tremendously! PLEASE!!!

  • Sierra A McBride

    I have never been to a signing to convention. It would give me a reason to go really and to not feel weird. Lol I don’t know many people in the blogging world, but it would be amazing to meet the Authors that write all of the amazing books I love. <3

    TY for the chance !

  • Tia

    I have never been to any of these conventions, book signings, anything like that. I live in a very small place and don’t have access to all these authors and books without traveling quite some distance. I would love to be able to get my feet wet by having this be my first convention. I LOVE YA and it is my favorite genre. I think this would be something my teen and I could do together. Thanks for the Awesome giveaway!

  • Kerri Conner Huffstutler

    I love to read and the chance to meet my favorite author would be amazing.

  • Sarah Conner

    I would love to meet some of my favorite authors and also be able to talk to others who love to read.

  • Kendall McCubbin

    I would love to win this prize package because although I’m already going to UtopYA, I didn’t buy a SuperStar Package, so it would be an awesome upgrade lol!

  • Lauren

    I would absolutely love this, I have never been able to go because of school but I graduate this spring and it would be a wonderful graduation present! πŸ™‚

  • Laveda Allen

    Would live to win because I’m a HUGE paranormal reader and would love to meet some really awesome writers! I would be so happy, I’d shit a brick! Thank you so much for the chance!
